    Can anyone recommend a good app for using Google chat? I've searched the App Store and not sure if any of them are useful.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    I've seen a few posts about Google chat, so I'm sure you'll get some answers soon..keep in touch and get back to us....

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free from


    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/...User_Guide.pdf

    Also the iPad2 manual is available at http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipad_2_user_guide.pdf

    It’s free too.

    Thank you! I'll try a search on the topic. I did download the iPad 2 manual from the book store and have read it.
    For some reason I cannot type in the reply box from the app for this forum. I have to do so from the web-based site for this forum. Why is this?

    I think I might have replied to you already in another thread - please forgive me if I have....

    Is this problem using the on-screen keyboard or the keyboard dock - or both even?

    I found a G talk app and bought it. So far, it seems to work ok. Better than nothing, as I use my ipad sitting on my sofa watching tv a lot, and also chat frequently on Google Talk (usually on my phone). This makes it so much better not to miss out on ppl contacting me if my phone is not nearby (like on the charger).

    IMO.im It's free and works great on the ipad. It tabs your chats if you're chatting with more than one person and allows push notifications so you don't miss a chat even if you don't have the app running.

    IM+ is another great multi messenger, it also supports GoogleTalk and allows you to send/receive images straight from the app.
